Cube Elite C:68X Race liquidred’n’carbon 2023
Races don’t win themselves, which is why you need a bike that’ll look after its rider. The Elite C:68X’s efficient, light and comfortable frame is just part of the story. Its Newmen Evolution tubeless-ready wheelset, lightweight folding Schwalbe tyres and RockShox SID Ultimate fork are another.
Combined with powerful Magura MT8 SL hydraulic disc brakes and the precise shifting of Sram’s wide-ranging XX1 Eagle 1×12 transmission, it’s a setup that combines blistering pace with sublime control and surprising comfort.Power. Speed. Control. For a high-performance race frame like the Elite C:68X, it’s all in the details.
Our premium C:68X carbon material and Advanced Twin Mold monocoque manufacturing technique have allowed us to create one of the lightest cross-country hardtails around. Optimised carbon lay-up, a tapered head tube and Boost rear axle translate into rapid acceleration. Slender seatstays help absorb trail vibration, so you can push harder for longer. And Agile Ride Geometry puts you firmly in control, so you can power ahead of the competition.
